Wine, dine and have a good time at MONTI

Maine Lobster Tail Carpaccio

Taste Tuscanian delights while taking in the spectacular view of Marina Bay at MONTI. Take your pick between their 3-course Valentine’s Day lunch menu and their 5-course dinner set from 10 to 16 February. Some not-to-missed items include their remake of the timeless Italian classic, Maine Lobster Tail Carpaccio, a perfectly ground fresh lobster sprinkled with gold and paired with Kyoho grapes and honey emulsion, and their House Made Ravioli that is just bursting with fresh burrata, langoustine and foie gras. No romantic dining is complete without a sweet ending – both menus are finished off with an exquisite White Chocolate with creamy Mascarpone cheese and topped with Amarena cherry.

MONTI’s Deck, which is open to the public

Post-dinner, head on up to MONTI’s Deck, which provides a full 180̊ view of the nightly light and water show at Marina Bay, happening at 8pm and 9pm. Wind down by watching the iconic polychromatic display and sipping cocktails at the bar – the perfect way to round off a memorable Valentine’s Day.
